When There Is Too Much Information, You Listen Better with Right Ear
A new study from Auburn University in Alabama suggests that when there’s a lot of information going into the brain, the brain is straining with the load, so the humans depend more on the right ear for processing and keeping the incoming information.
Forty-one adults aged between 19 and 28 participated in the study. They took part in a number of both separation and integration dichotic listening tests. With each subsequent test, the amount of information increased.
Having analyzed the received data, the scientists concluded that when there was no too much of information, the participant retained information fed into their both ears well, but when the amount of information increased, their ability to remember items heard by the right ear was greater than the items heard by the left ear. The average difference was 8% but some persons had the difference up to 40%.
